Viglink is the best affiliate marketing for new bloggers. I recommend this to New or Older bloggers hands down. I currently use Viglink, and I am hoping to make significant returns from this.

Stream SEO had this to say about Chitika “The reason I put Chitika on the number 3 of this list, is because Chitika is very similar to Adsense. They allow you to customise your ads, and it only serves contextual ads.

One good thing is that you can use it along with Adsense and there are no problems at all. Chitika pays via Paypal ($10 USD minimum, which is good for starters) or via check ($50 minimum). If I were to recommend an ads service as an alternative to Adsense, Chitika would be my first choice, hands down.”

  • Chitika pays publishers 45 days after the month ends.
  • They pay via  PayPal.
